Lovely Strawberries N Cream jello dessert

We Mexicans love desserts, and a meal is not complete if dessert is not part of the menu. We like to offer many kinds of sweet options, such as flan, rice pudding, fresh seasonal fruit, cheese and jellies, cakes, and gelatin desserts.

Many bakeries in Mexico sell a variety of gelatin desserts that are beautifully presented using different layers of colors, flavors, nuts, and fruits. Many include anise-flavored gelatin which gives a pleasant taste and aroma pairing well with milk jello and fruits. Many of the jello desserts sold showcase artsy forms to make it a piece of edible art.

Equipment

  • Bundt heart-shaped cake mold
  • Measuring cup
  • Pot

Ingredients
  

  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can condensed milk 12oz
  • 1 cup warm water 12oz
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 box strawberry flavored jello 3 oz
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries chopped
  • vegetable oil in spray

Instructions
 

  • Add the two packets of unflavored gelatin to a small bowl and dilute using a half cup of room temperature or cold water. Let the gelatin bloom for few minutes and set aside. 
  • Use a heart-shaped baking pan and spray with vegetable oil. In a small pot add twelve ounces of water and warm. Open the condensed milk can and combine with the hot water using a whisk or use the blender.
  • Add this mixture to the blender along with one egg, and vanilla extract. Blend on high and when all ingredients are incorporated add the bloomed unflavored gelatin and blend again. 
  • Pour the vanilla milk jello into the heart-shaped pan previously coated with vegetable oil and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes for a soft set.   
  • Prepare the strawberry jello. Dissolve the flavored gelatin with one cup of boiling water. Add another cup of cold water and stir. Pour the strawberry jello on top of the soft set milk jello slowly.
  • Add the chopped fresh strawberries, cover with plastic and refrigerate until the second layer sets. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Use a serving plate and take the gelatin out of the mold. Decorate with fresh strawberries and enjoy.

Notes

  • Letting the unflavored gelatin to bloom is an important step otherwise the jello dessert won’t set. 
  • Spraying the mold is an essential step for easy jello release. You can use regular vegetable oil or in a spray 
  • You can dismiss the use of the egg if desired. We add this ingredient for creaminess. Many jello desserts include egg as a component. 
  • Patience is critical, letting the gelatin to set before creating the next layer is essential otherwise the different layers won’t be defined. 
  • The Strawberries N Cream Jello Dessert requires refrigeration. Do not take out of the mold until ready to serve. Otherwise, the jello will dry and won’t look fresh.
